    WASHINGTON — The US Army is cancelling its next generation Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) program, service officials announced today, taking a potential multi-billion-dollar contract off the table and throwing the service’s long-term aviation plans into doubt. In addition, the Army plans to end production on the UH-60 V Black Hawk in fiscal 2025, due to “significant cost growth,” keep General Electric’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP) in the development phase instead of moving it into production, and phase the Shadow and Raven unmanned aerial systems out of the fleet, the service added. All told, it reflects a massive shift...

    Two associates of Rudy Giuliani made their initial appearance before a federal judge on Thursday, less than 24 hours after they were arrested on campaign finance violations while trying to board an international flight with one-way tickets at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington D.C. Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman appeared in federal court in Alexandria, Va. to face a four-count indictment alleging that they, along with two other co-defendants, conspired to violate a ban on foreign donations and contributions in connection with federal and state elections. The two men remained mostly silent during their appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge...
  • Burisma lawyer FINALLY registers as a foreign agent in the US: Hunter Biden faces more questions as attorney who represented firm where he was on the board agrees to disclose all his foreign interests

    A lawyer just registered as a foreign agent for work he conducted eight years ago for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, when Hunter Biden was on the board. The disclosure raises questions about whether Hunter Biden could face FARA charges in the future that could complicate his father President Joe Biden's re-election run. The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires law firms and lobbyists to disclose work representing the interests of foreign clients.
  • Menendez, (RAT-NJ) now accused of acting as foreign agent, has a history of blocking FARA reform bills

    Fox News ^ | 10/15/23 | Jamie Joseph
    Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who is now facing an additional charge of acting as a foreign agent in an indictment released Thursday, has a history of opposing Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) reforms, according to Senate records. In 2020, Menendez blocked Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s bipartisan-led effort to create stricter penalties regulating influence of foreign entities on the U.S. government. The Foreign Agents Disclosure and Registration Enhancement Act of 2019 would have built upon existing law to boost disclosure to the public of foreign lobbying campaigns. "It seems shortsighted to provide additional enforcement tools before we have figured out what...

    The Justice Department this week hit Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) with a superseding indictment including a new but all-too-familiar charge: being an unregistered foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). I cannot recall another sitting member of Congress being criminally charged as a foreign agent. Yet even if this is the first such case, the charge has been freely used by the Justice Department in all but one case: Hunter Biden. The indictment accuses Menendez of being a foreign agent on behalf of Egypt. Also charged under the law is Menendez’s wife, Nadine, and Egyptian American businessman Wael...

    The U.S. Department of Justice ordered FBI and IRS investigators involved in the Hunter Biden probe to "remove any reference" to President Biden in a search warrant related to a Foreign Agents Registration Act probe, new documents released by the House Ways & Means Committee reveal. Committee Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo., led a vote Wednesday to release new documents provided by IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler that "corroborate their initial testimony to the Committee and reinforce their credibility and their high esteem among colleagues." "The Biden Administration — including top officials at the Justice Department — lied to...

    House Republicans on Wednesday released emails and documents showing Delaware Assistant US Attorney Lesley Wolf DID NOT ALLOW federal agents to investigate Joe Biden as part of a FARA probe. Lesley Wolf directed investigators to remove all mentions of Joe Biden from a search warrant. “Please focus on FARA evidence only,” an August 7, 2020 email from Lesley Wolf to federal agents read. “There should be nothing about Political Figure 1 in here.” House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith said the Department of Justice “actively interfered in an investigation to protect the current president of the United States.

    Hunter Biden’s laptop is a treasure trove of potentially felonious activity. It’s a roadmap into the entire Biden operation concerning shady deals with corrupt oligarchs whose monies were funneled into shell companies owned by the family. These proceeds soared into the millions of dollars, which explains the over 170 suspicious activity reports from six banks regarding the family’s financial transactions. Joe Biden’s son raked in $20 million from these people—he still didn’t know what was going on? Any parent would know, and Hunter isn’t one to keep his mouth shut about his lucrative exploits. His ego wouldn’t allow it. We...

    Biden’s repeated denials that he participated in his son’s foreign business transactions or ever spoke to his son about them have shifted in recent weeks amid an accumulation of evidence from bank records and eyewitness testimony that show he likely played a pivotal role in securing the lucrative deals. Biden opted to remain silent on Friday when reporters shouted questions at him about a new Justice Department special counsel investigation of his son Hunter Biden for crimes related to tax evasion, financial schemes and .. acting as an unregistered lobbyist for foreign entities ...

    Americans by wide margins say President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, violated a law against peddling foreign influence, a DailyMail.com poll shows, amid swirling allegations about the first family's business dealings. Fully 63 percent of voters say the president breached the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which obliges people to declare foreign interests, when he served as vice president and his son worked with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. Another 29 percent said they did not believe Biden, a Democrat, had broken the rules, and 8 percent were not sure. Republican voters overwhelmingly said Biden had committed wrongdoing, as...

    After Hunter Biden’s plea deal dramatically fell apart in court this week, the Department of Justice made clear it is still looking into potential foreign lobbying and money laundering charges against him. And now after a painstaking investigation using documents from Hunter's abandoned laptop, interviews with sources and subpoenaed records obtained by DailyMail.com, we can reveal exactly what evidence may be used against the First Son. The information lays out a laundry list of potential foreign influence violations that span China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Kazakhstan, Mexico and other Latin American countries.

    Below is my column in The Messenger on what I called Biden’s “break-the-glass” option after the disaster in Delaware. After the column ran, Fox News asked White House Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre about the possibility of a pardon. Jean-Pierre cut him off and responded unequivocally “no.” I hope that proves to be true but it would have been more assuring to come from someone who did not clearly misrepresent the President’s earlier denial just a day earlier and change his long-standing position. The President previously denied a series of facts that have been proven, including the fact that his son did...

    Hunter Biden’s defense team on Wednesday rejected a plea agreement after a federal judge forced prosecutors to confirm that the deal did in fact not include immunity from future potential charges related to Hunter Biden acting as an agent for foreign governments. According to the New York Times, Judge Maryellen Noreika had asked Leo Wise, a top prosecutor in the case, if the plea deal meant Hunter Biden would be immune from prosecution for other possible crimes, specifically including crimes related to the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). When Wise said no, Biden’s lead lawyer, Chris Clark, reportedly then said...

    VILNIUS, Lithuania — The White House refused to comment Tuesday on the potential legal exposure for President Biden, first son Hunter and first brother James Biden after a US citizen was criminally charged for working as an unregistered agent of the same Chinese firm that paid the Biden family. “What’s the White House’s take on potential [Foreign Agents Registration Act] liability for the first family and the president?” The Post asked White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan at a NATO summit in Lithuania. “I’ve not seen that and cannot comment on it,” Sullivan deflected during a briefing.

    ‘The Justice Department just baptized Hunter Biden: a lifetime of sins washed away in an instant,’ Carlson said. ‘It was a secular miracle.’ (LifeSiteNews) — Following the news of Hunter Biden accepting a plea deal from his father’s Department of Justice (DOJ), Tucker Carlson argued that while ordinary citizens would go to jail for “cheating on [their] taxes or violating federal gun laws,” such “princelings” may “do what they want” and avoid any real consequences. It was reported Tuesday that U.S. President Joe Biden’s son Hunter agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges in exchange for avoiding prosecution...

    Gal Luft, the “missing” witness in the House Oversight Committee’s Biden family corruption investigation, has told The Post he is alive and living as a fugitive in an undisclosed location. The former Israeli Defense Force colonel vanished from Cyprus last month while on bail awaiting extradition to the US on seven charges. He denies the allegations, which include five charges relating to the Arms Export Control Act of conspiring to sell Chinese products to the United Arab Emirates, Kenya and Libya, as well as a violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and of making a false statement.

    NATO is looking for a way out of Ukraine according to recent reports. These claims come on the heals of mysteriously timed document leaks showing the war in Ukraine is unwinnable for NATO unless it wants to launch WW3. The news also follows recent independent reports showing that Russia just destroyed a heavily fortified underground bunker that housed over 300 top NATO and Ukrainian leaders. Why is the media silent on this story? Video at link.
